Some members of the White Sot
cast are playing as though they still
believe they 'will be in the post-season
series for the baseball champion
ship of the world. They are not let- .
ting their minds dwell on the cfinso
latien of a clash with the Cubs for
the comparatively slender sum such
a tangle would bring.
Each of the trio of leaders vas

have set as an ambition. Eddie Col
lins has not been below .300 since he
became a big league regular and is
certain to be above that figure this
season, though the road has been
Jong and rough. But Eddie favors
himself as a young man capable of
hammering the horsehide for some
thing like .325 or better, and is bent
on reaching thagoal.
He has come forward with giant

home lot and heard the flap of a pen

age was around :280 at that time, but
Eddie plugged manfully on andvagain
showed himself a money player v of '
the first water.
Hap Felsch is another young man
who has set himself a batting mark,
the attainment of which will give
him great satisfaction. Hap believes
he should hit .300 or better against
